Group Consultations

Group consultations are a wonderful way to experience and learn the depth of how feng shui energies of a space affect the occupants. I am pleased to offer these invitations for you to join and observe actual feng shui consultations – a wonderful addition to your feng shui studies.

For the client, this is an opportunity where you benefit by paying half the cost of a private consultation. The fee for having a group consultation is USD$500.00 in 9 red envelopes.

For the observers, this is a very profound experiential teaching. My request is that you become mindful, compassionate and non-judgmental of both the client as well as our group’s chi energies. In exchange for being a part of this invaluable teaching, I will be requesting a total of USD$50.00 in 9 red envelopes.



After the consultation with the client, please make some time immediately after the consultation where we can all sit in a quiet space and have some tea to evaluate and discuss our time together. Allow approximately 45 minutes to an hour for our discussion time.

Please let me know whether you can definitely join our intimate chi-filled group.

Parsons School of Design
The New School

For the last couple years, I was invited to teach at Parsons for a studio class taught by Michele Laporte.

There are different topics for each studio project. One project was for the study at the intersection of Broadway and Canal Streets in Chinatown; and the other project was for the study of Madison Park near the Flatiron Building in Chelsea.

Please take a look how these students integrated feng shui into their projects!
